Is it possible to have sex during the HPV vaccine?

Can people have sex during the HPV vaccine?


1. Can people have sex during the HPV vaccine?

If it is confirmed that both parties are not infected with the HPV virus, then no matter before the injection, during the injection, or even after the injection, you can have normal sexual behavior.

However, it should be noted that during the period of HPV vaccination, safety measures must be taken, remember to wear a condom, to avoid accidentally suspending vaccination after pregnancy.

In addition, if both parties have sex for the first time, the chance of contracting HPV virus is actually very small, so there is no need to worry. It is recommended to pay attention to sexual hygiene.

Although there are antibodies in the body during the vaccination period, if it is the first injection, the antibody concentration is not enough to maintain a long-term immune effect, or it is not enough to fight the HPV virus. Therefore, it is necessary to continue the process of boosting the 3 shots of HPV vaccine (the composition and dosage of the 3 shots of HPV vaccine are the same).

Here, it is worth reminding that although sex can be carried out during the HPV vaccine period, it is still recommended that you need to control yourself, avoid excessive or even chaotic sex, and pay more attention to sexual hygiene.

After all, the HPV vaccine can greatly reduce the risk of HPV infection, and the effectiveness of preventing cervical cancer can reach more than 90%.

That is: getting the HPV vaccine does not mean that you will not be infected with HPV, nor does it mean that cervical cancer can be prevented 100%. Everyone should understand one thing: sex and close contact are the main ways to cause HPV infection. However, the general recommendation is to vaccinate before sex. Age is not the most important factor, but sex is an important factor.

After starting sexual life, it means that there is a risk of contracting HPV virus, so female friends should get HPV vaccine as soon as possible~


2. Will HPV vaccination cause HPV infection?

Some sisters have been delayed in getting the HPV vaccine, but they mistakenly believe that the HPV vaccine will cause a virus infection?

Xiaozhi, let me refute the rumors first:

This is a misunderstanding, don’t believe it!

The HPV vaccine uses the protein shell of the virus to trigger immunity. It is a protein rather than a virus. It does not have the function of a virus, so it will not cause virus infection.

What’s more, the HPV vaccines currently on the market are all preventive vaccines. They are a kind of virus-like protein particles that can activate the body’s humoral immunity and prevent HPV infection, thereby avoiding the occurrence of HPV-related diseases. In other words, preventive vaccines can reduce the incidence of cervical cancer, but they may have little effect on patients who have been infected with the virus (the effect of the vaccine will be greatly reduced~)
Here, Xiaozhi feels that it is necessary to also mention the safety of HPV vaccine to everyone.
The safety of HPV vaccine has been well studied. All three HPV vaccines have undergone years of extensive safety testing before obtaining FDA approval. The FDA only approves vaccines that are safe, effective, and have more advantages than disadvantages.

Clinical trials: 9-valent HPV vaccine (Gardasil 9) was studied in more than 15,000 women and men; 4-valent HPV vaccine (Gardasil) was studied in 29,000 women and men; 2-valent HPV vaccine (Cervarix) was studied in more than 30,000 women and men. Several women conducted the Cervarix study.

Since the advent of the human papillomavirus vaccine in 2006, the United States and other countries have conducted many large-scale safety studies and made reassuring findings. Except for syncope (fainting), no confirmed safety signals (ie adverse events) have been observed. The number is higher than expected).

The three HPV vaccines have undergone rigorous clinical trials and verification before being marketed. The results show that these three HPV vaccines are safe and effective!

It is found that some people have dizziness and vomiting symptoms after vaccination, especially young people, who will faint after vaccination.

In order to prevent fainting-related injuries, there is a unified recommendation: people receiving HPV vaccine should sit or lie down during the vaccination period, and then observe the patient for 15 minutes after vaccination.

In fact, this is also a common adverse reaction (side effect), but the size of this side effect varies from person to person, and some people are all normal after vaccination, so you can rest assured.

In fact, the CDC has been monitoring the safety of HPV vaccines and will provide timely updated information to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Global Vaccine Safety Advisory Committee of the World Health Organization.

So far, there is no clear and authoritative official data to prove: HPV vaccination will seriously harm human health!
